Protective styles let you switch up your style, sporting hair of any length and texture while you actually grow you own. Don’t get it twisted, however, just because your mane is guarded by a protective style doesn’t mean you can outright neglect it.
If you’d like to find your real hair in a better condition then when you first got your style, you should be treating it with these products. Here’s our definitive list of what to use under your protective style.
Girl + Hair’s under care line is made specifically for protective styles. This hydrating treatment balm nourishes and rebuilds strands to minimize breakage (during and after your style comes out) and helps keep the scalp moisturized and itch-free.
